Plant Care 

We highly recommend isolating any new plants that you bring home for about 14 days, in order to observe if there are any pests or diseases.

We do not use any  pesticides unless there is a major threat to our beloved plants.

By practice,  we rely on supporting the overall health of the plant by giving them lots of love and by the physical removal of any pests that we may find on our plants, either by hand or with a nice shower of water.

If we find ourselves in the situation of needing to treat our plants with some sort of intervention, we will choose Neem Oil, Agricultural Grade Hydrogen Peroxide or in the worst case scenario, we have chosen to utilize a pyrethrin based product.

Pyrethrin-based insecticides are a class of organic insecticides derived from natural substances found in a single species of flower in the Chrysanthemum genus (C. cinerariifolium), also known as Dalmatian daisy or pyrethrin daisy.

Many botanical growers use a ton of pesticides! And even then, there is a risk of an outbreak of some sort shortly after bringing home new plants.

We value your trust and support as we work cooperatively with Mother Nature to offer you the highest quality agricultural products grown with LOVE!

How To Propagate Succulents

From Leaf:

  • Carefully remove the lower leaves  from the stem 
  • Make sure to get a “Clean Break” from the stem
  • Place leaves in a shallow tray on dry potting soil out of sunlight for a few days/ up to several weeks to allow the end of the leaves to “Scar/Heal” over
  • Place the calloused end of the leaf in dry potting soil to encourage a “Pup” to emerge 
  • Gently mist the leaves  and soilbeing careful not to over water in order to avoid rot
  • BE PATIENT! (This step could take 1-2 months)
  • Once you have a new baby plant with leaves and roots and you can begin to feed and water your plant

From Cutting:

  • Carefully strip lower leaves off stem leaving about 1-2 inches
  • Fill a terracotta pot with potting soil
  • Use a stick, pencil or scissors to poke a hole into the soil and arrange the cuttings making sure to loosely tamp down the soil
  • Everywhere there was a leaf/stem juncture is a potential for roots to grow, so getting as many junctures below the soil line is the best practice
  • Gently mist the cuttings and soil—but keep the soil on the dry side in order to prevent rot
  • In 3-6 weeks, cuttings should have roots and you can begin to feed and water your plant

Basic Care:

  • Plant in potting soil with adequate drainage.
  • Porous non glazed ceramic pots are preferred since it helps the soil dry out between watering more quickly. Glazed and plastic pots are fine. All pots should have drainage holes, but if you have a favorite planter that you cannot drill holes fill ¼ of the pot with stones to provide better drainage.
  • If your succulents are outside in a heavy rain, make sure to bring in/cover any pots that do not have drainage holes in order to prevent drowning out your arid loving succulents.
  • In Rhode Island, succulents love to live outside May-Sept. Protect from frost.
  • Water plant when soil is dry to the touch. They like to dry out in between watering.
  • Mist your plants in between watering, especially during the summer months when it is hot. The leaves love a daily shower! Just be careful to not soak the soil.
  • For rosette type succulents, do not allow water to collect in the center in order to prevent rot, mold and pests.

Remember your succulents like the soil to dry out between watering and like LOTS of indirect sunlight
